WHAT IS A COMPOSITE DOOR?

06/15/18

In recent years, the composite door industry has grown substantially, becoming the must–have choice for any new build. However, this begs the question I’m sure a lot of people looking for a new door have asked themselves, what is a composite door?

Composite doors are doors that are made of more than one material. This allows for the combination of different materials which counteract common problems found in UPVC/Timber doors as well as bringing their own advantages to the door. Our composite doors are made from fibreglass and a high density polyurethane core.

 Fibreglass is incredibly durable, adding to the security of our doors, it is also waterproof, windproof and long lasting. Fibreglass also does not warp or bow, which is a common problem with PVC doors.

The other material we use is high density polyurethane, which as well as adding strength and security to the door, is an excellent insulator which contributes to the low U–Values of our doors.

With a 70mm thick composite door made of these two materials and our multi–point locking system and our anti–pick, anti–snap cylinders, you have a door that has met the police standard of security with Secured By Design as well as PAS24. On top of this, you also get one of the most thermally efficient doors on the market.
